Get 50% More Value in Travel Redemption
Usually we transfer Ultimate Rewards to our favor airlines and redeem their business or first class award ticket. This is the way that you can get the best value out of your miles and points if you like to travel in style and comfort like us.
Otherwise, you can use the points to redeem for airfare, hotels, car rentals and cruises. Chase Sapphire Reserve offers the 50% more value for travel redemption verse Chase Ink Plus and Chase Sapphire Preferred offer only 25% more value in travel redemption. For travel redemption, there is no blackout dates or travel restrictions as long as there is a seat on the flight and you can book it through Chase Ultimate Rewards.
We are planning to rent a car for our December trip. With the new Chase Sapphire Reserve that we receive and its 50% more value in travel redemption, we save more in Ultimate Rewards. I.e. We should transfer all ultimate rewards into our Chase Sapphire Reserve to get the best value. Also, don’t forget the $300 travel credit that you can use annually.
